to marlin marshall, recently of barack obama's reelection campaign, for opening comments that thank you for coming and thank you for inviting me today. >> i'm originally from st. louis, missouri by way of kansas. i apologize in advance. i will not take eight minutes because i cannot talk about myself for eight minutes. i will be brief. i got involved in politics at the university of kansas and that inspired me into this profession because i believe you can make change. it was really 2002 when i got involved in my first race in kansas and there i learned to make a difference by organizing communities across the country and that is why i started this business. this past cycle was awesome. from my standpoint but i think one of the things i would like to discuss today with you all as we continue this is what worked and what did not work. there is money in politics now and the pacs affect everything. at the end of the day, i think candidate campaigns matter. use of that with this presidential election. we put a lot of resources and infrastructure and organize communities on the ground in eve

, jay carney -- [laughter] to take those questions. thank you, everybody. [captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2013] >> a story on the politico shows some of the reaction to president obama's budget cuts, saying that the plan appears to be dead on arrival. the house armed services committee is quoted as saying, "i am flabbergasted. until the president addresses the real problem, he is just whistling in the wind." the story goes on to say that this was the latest salvo in the never ending fiscal battles. this latest offensive lacks the urgency of the compromise, and congressional publicans are no longer in a compromising mood on taxes. there was another fiscal issue on the house floor today, on a measure that would require the president to submit a plan for balancing the budget to congress by april 1. a congressman of georgia is a sponsor of the legislation. here is some of that debate. wish it didn't come to this. president obama has a legal and a moral obligation to offer solutions to our fiscal challenges. s

as well, soledad that the white house, president obama and fema are in touch with local and state officials ahead of this storm. >> it's good to hear on that front because it looks like it's going to be bad. brianna, thank you. indra petersons, in boston, 34 inches really? >> reporter: i want to you imagine you are in boston. it's been a mild winter, we're about 15 inches below normal for snow amounts and this morning we're seeing temperatures at the freezing mark. winds are gusting, 20-mile-per-hour steady winds but overall clear visibility. i want to show you where the customs tower is. this is less than a quarter mile, you can clearly see this this morning. by the afternoon, we're expecting snowfall rates of two to three inches per hour, gusts anywhere from 50 to even 70 miles per hour and that's the reason we have the blizzard warning in effect. this monstrous blizzard is expected to bring visibility down near zero. when all is said and done i can be standing here with three feet of snow and i can have banks of snow or flurries above my head. everyone is doing exactly what the
